Children escape fire
BEAUMONT - Two children -- who were home alone when a fire started -- were able to make it out safely.
Fire investigators say a space heater placed too close to a bed caused the blaze at the home in the 500 block of Langham in Beaumont.
A 13-year-old girl and a 3-year-old boy were home at the time. A passerby helped them escape from the house.
Fire fighters were able to keep the fire contained to one bedroom, but it was heavily damaged.
No one was injured.
